Can't you just remove the floppy drive and put the disk where the floppy
drive was?

Do you have a picture of what the thing looks like, somewhere?

Maybe if I ever get to go to Oldenburg. I wanted to do that for a while,
but it just never happened thus far.

Not that exim filters are very hard -- "info exim-filter" (exim4-filter
if you use Debian's Exim v4 packages) is really all you need.

So do I.

Very good.

There are two downsides about it: it's huge (about half a meter in three
dimensions) and it isn't fast (4ppm in color, 12ppm in black&white,
mainly because it's a four-pass printer). If you don't mind about all
that, it's a great thing. Really.
